Elizabeth Wong
It is abosolute impossible to comment on the above Suaram Human Rights Report 2006 unless until your commentators have some information on the substances of the above Report.
I am sure you have your reason for not putting up your summary, the public shall be able to understand in view of the sensitiveness of the entire matter at this juncture. May be, your policy at this stage is not to divulge to the public.
Whatever the case, I admire those who wrote the Report, the dare devils as they say.


EW: The overview / executive summary is available over at the Suaram website.

Hi Liz!
Cute and beautiful small boat on your headline!
Give us soon a report about “eye contact”, I’m curious :)

EW: Hi Mario! The boat photo was taken near Tonle Sap, Siem Reap, Cambodia :)

After the PKR congress, hope you will take a deserving rest and recuperate. You’ve brought a refreshing and rejuvenation appeal to PKR with your huge portfolio on human-rights activities.
Cheers!

Liz is much to be admired to care so much for human rights.She is like a twin sister to Susan and one in the making right now…..Black.
Books after books are written on terrible injustices done to humans who dare to speak out. some are put to death with nobody knowing it.Some are made to look like accidents.Hope the authorities in Malaysia are more humane and reasonable…but there is always the ISA to shut one mouth up. that should be abolished..as it tells the government from the start is afraid in goimng forward towards better democratic country. It is no more so strong…as internet will also put out whatever wrons done…not like before.
So lawyers and judges must be fair and just.
It is good the government is finally exposing the scroundrels who are educated as lawyers to cheat the public…not many…but do give a very name to noble law people. This is not new…and now exposed under Pak Lah’s leadership…never under TDM….speaks all good about Pak Lah.. Again..I am very sad…not one present minister are being sacked by him…although he hinted so well to Samy to resign…not good enough. It needs direct and straight forward to tell him go…as he is truly thick skin and a useless minister.
The terrible acts towards human beings by the police or military…cannot be blamed on these two forces. The responsibilities lies solely on a good COMMANDER…Pak Lah…as far as Malaysia is concerned.

Congratgulation for 30% of the votes. You have done wonders in the special circumstances inspiteof the fact no canvassing at all and most important you are not a Muslim.

I am glad you have given and spoken your mind to the Red Indian Chief. In spite of his withdrawal to contest the Presidentship, now given to his beloved wife, that although he is not the elected President of his Party. he told ALL present that he is the DE FACTO PRESIDENT of the party. I fear the Malaysian Registrar of Societies in view of that he stated under the Societies Act, will act under his action and may even de-register the Party. You are aware the BN is after his blood, especially the Deputy PM.

Never mind, as the General elections is just around the corner, act immediately and try to collaborate with other parties to gain a few more Parliamentary seats.

Work closely in conjunction with the wizard and “fortune teller? Raja Petra Kamaruddin who really love and care for his countrymen of all races. I am sure he has something on his sleeves. It will take long time, dedicated people to a cause and plenty of money as you cannot live on love and fresh air. But members of the Malayan Communist party for decades able to perform.

Good luck and best wishes.

Liz, heard you lost to a nobody in the Keadilan election. Keadilan jokers dont know what they miss – a glamorous poster girl for the party. Very sad, these jokers have no taste.


EW: Hahaha! Rodziah is one of the vice-chiefs of the Women’s wing. She’s a heavyweight :)

10. Nstman - May 29, 2007

Liz, whatever it is, victory or no, you have dedicated your life to the struggle against lies, treachery, bigotry, hypocrisy. You could have taken the easy way out, got a good job and enriched yourself, but you didnt. I admire you. it’s a long road in your struggle, full of pitfalls and bumps. You took the road less travelled, so to speak. But at the end of the day, you would probably tell yourself that it is worth it. And you did it your way. Liz, I admire your guts. You remind me of Tania, the lover of Che Guevera. Tania had everything going for her, well educated, pretty. In the end, she died for something she believed in – to fight for the oppressed. And she did it with Che Guevera. She died a lonely death in the jungles of Bolivia.

I’m sorry for the election. However, you did a wonderful job in NGO activities and have a right to have acknowledged.

12. monsterball - May 31, 2007

Liz.. I am truly sorry for Lina Joy and sick of political judges…or maybe judges with no guts to fight unjustifiable laws made by unjustifiable men. Some dare not protect humankind…so why be a judge?
This I also think is somewhat related to you post..for human rights also depend on powerful law makers to have the clear consciences to treat all humans as humans…and not as animals.

13. wits0 - June 1, 2007

“…so why be a judge?”

Good question. The law makers seem mainly sleeply senator walruses who wakes up justto be aye-men.

In his concluding remark, Judge Fairuz gave a very flawed interpretation of reality that anyone with a bit of brains can see through. the rubbish about changing religion whimsically….because Lina was already a Christian for 17 years before.
